Recent problems with XP I have tried to go back using safemode.Keyboard locked and I could not access safemode.CMOS Settings were reset and after using safemode I now find myself with a lot of my programs having to be reset. No problems ,a small price to pay for messing around. However I now have a duplicate set of files starting with Temp in Documents and Settings which cannot be deleted as they are regarded as systems files.Opening Internet Explorer keeps referring to these files when I look for favorites,cookies etc.How do get rid of these files with Explorer looking to my original
Documents and Settings?

For Temporary Internet Files go to Internet Options, on the general page open up the Settings for the TIFs. At the bottom of the screen click Move Folder and select the location where you would like the folder located. You will probably have to re-boot.

Hope this solves your problem.

Thanks for the help.However having changed directory for files it still refused to budge. Having different users set up. I thought I would log out and go into a other and delete from there. I managed to do so but when I went back to my own settings. Guess what, back came another duplicated directory only without the Temp. So enough is enough. I checked all the files against each other and removed the original ****mbs and it appears to be fine.
Thanks a lot everyone. Do you get these many problems with LINUX ?
